Posted Mon Apr 25, 2011 at 02:00 PM PDT by

Three classic anime adventures will bring terrorism, hackers, intrigue, and danger to Blu-ray on June 21.

In an early announcement to retailers, Starz/Anchor Bay is working on 'Ghost in the Shell: Solid State Society,' 'Ghost in the Shell: The Laughing Man,' and 'Ghost in the Shell: Individual Eleven' for a Blu-ray release on June 21.

'Ghost in the Shell: Solid State Society' - Public Security Section 9 investigates the hacker and discovers a complex conspiracy involving a crippled senior citizen program, a zealous right-wing politician, and a corrupt civil service bureaucracy.

'Ghost in the Shell: Laughing Man' - New information is revealed to Japan’s top homeland security force, drawing Major Kusanagi and Section 9 into the hunt for a suspect capable of hacking the eyes of every operative, obscuring all detail of his appearance and leaving behind a trail of copycats and hacked cyborg citizens.

'Ghost in the Shell: Individual Eleven' - The year is 2030, and an influx of refugees have effortlessly transformed themselves into a terrorist organization known as the “Individual Eleven.” With a sadistic intent of mass destruction, will they triumph in victory or discover the gloomy pitfalls of defeat?

The Blu-rays will feature 1080p video, DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtracks, and will include digitally enhanced and reworked scenes.

Suggested list price for each Blu-ray is $34.98.
